Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures dance company returns to Sadler’s Wells this Christmas with Edward Scissorhands.

Matthew Bourne (Swan Lake) and his New Adventures dance company present their magical adaptation of Tim Burton’s beloved film fable Edward Scissorhands.

Following sold-out shows around the world, this sumptuous production returns to Sadler’s Wells Theatre for a limited Christmas season.

Edward Scissorhands features choreography by acclaimed multi-award-winning director and choreographer Matthew Bourne, set and costumes by Olivier Award winner Lez Brotherston, and the beautiful music from the movie by Danny Effman.

The show stars Dominic North, who returns to the title role that earned him a Best Male Dancer National Dance Award nomination. Joining him in the role of Edward will be Billy Elliot star Liam Mower.

THE STORY

Edward Scissorhands is a boy who is still unfinished when the inventor who created him dies.

Kim Boggs played by Ashley Shaw or Katy Lowenhoff.
